    Default Shark Tank?

    I saw the following line in a movie but am not sure what it means. Can any native speaker help me explain it? What is chum and what is shark tank.Thank you very much!

    Looks like we brought chum to the shark tank.

    And what does "third-wave emo punk" mean when it refers to a person, say, young man?
